Murder by Death

I read cozy and historical mysteries, a bit of Paranormal/UF, and to mix it up, I read science and gardening books on occasion.

New Books This Week (May 20)

The Bookshop Strikes Back - Ann Patchett Old Herbaceous: A Novel of the Garden - Reginald Arkell Midnight in Austenland - Shannon Hale On the Edge -  Ilona Andrews Against the Paw - Diane Kelly Love, Lies and Spies - Cindy Anstey

These trickled in over the course of the week, so as I was putting this together I was surprised how many there were; if you'd asked me, I'd have said 2-3 max.


The Bookshop Strikes Back by Ann Patchett almost doesn't count as a book, it's really a special printing pamphlet Bloomsbury books did of Patchett's essay from the Atlantic Monthly in 2012.  I hunted it down because I'm building a small "books about books" collection.  It's a good essay, btw.


Old Herbaceous is one I picked up from one of my BL friends' posts; I have got to start using the notes function so I can properly thank people by name.


Midnight in Austenland was recommended to me by Darth Pony (ha! remembered!) because I'd read the first book, Austenland and thought it was pretty good.


Love, Lies and Spies was an impulse buy when I stopped at our local bookstore to buy MT a copy of The Hunger Games.  After being eyeball-deep in Harry Bosch and books by Baldacci he turned to me the other night and said he wanted to read The Hunger Games.  Cool, although I'm still trying to adjust to the genre whiplash.
